Weekend info-gathering roundup #3

I'm late with my round up, but didn't want to let all my fun reading go "to waste." Here's some of what I ran across in my spare time this weekend--and there wasn't too much of that! (I'm efficient, what can I say? Twitter, newsfeeds and RSS... all the best friends of the busy gal.)

Here are a couple of funny videos, completely related to all things interwebnets:

A couple of great infographics matching states with their respective appropriate media (TV or movie). I thought most of them to be pretty spot on.

Dining in a house made of gingerbread? Yum, but I think the scent would be rather overwhelming...

Wouldn't mind finding a vase in the basement with this as the outcome. Holy cow, $85 million! Thanks, Mom and Dad.

Eight amazing, but impractical (to me) uses for an iPad. I think I'll still take my little leather stand/case...

Narcissism good for business? This article generated a lot of discussion in our house, to say the least. And led to the taking of the narcissistic personality inventory... interesting stuff. And then we all took a general personality test too. And then I took another one. Those tests are always so interesting to me...

What the food magazines are recommending for Thanksgiving menus this year. A really great roundup!

Fitness magazine published a list of 20 vegetable side dishes... quite a few of them looked quite yummy, but I was most drawn to the brussels sprouts with sherry-asiago cream sauce and the cauliflower with gruyere sauce (can we say fondue?). Might have to give those a whirl, soon.

And in all my ramblings around, I saw a quote I hadn't read in a bit, but one that I always enjoy:
In the depths of winter I finally learned there was in me an invincible summer. -Albert Camus


  1. It's nice to know I haven't changed in the 25 years since I've taken that personality test:

    Ta-dah, your personality type is ENFP! [but since the first one is 50/50 wonder why it specified extraverted]

    Extraverted (E) 50% Introverted (I) 50%
    Intuitive (N) 55% Sensing (S) 45%
    Feeling (F) 85% Thinking (T) 15%
    Perceiving (P) 86% Judging (J) 14%

    Although on the Jung Typology, I got this:

    Introverted (22%) Intuitive (25%) Feeling (62%) Perceiving (44%)
    Strength of the preferences %

  2. Thanks for sharing, Janet. I most often come out ESTJ, but it is pretty down the middle on the S and T. The E is me, and, alas, so is the J. I've made my peace with it. ;)
